Anthropology

Postdoctoral Mentor:
Tom E. Fricke

Research: Dr. Singh's research broadly examines how global politics and reproductive technologies intersect with local cultural factors and inequalities to shape fertility experiences. In her ethnographic work on infertility in northern India, she has examined how women from diverse caste, religious, and class backgrounds describe their desire for children. Her work analyzes their attempts to fulfill child desire through strategies ranging from treatment through biomedical and South Asian medical systems, including assisted reproductive technologies, to adoption and other forms of child circulation. Her current research follows the expansion of infertility services in India, as well as debates about and experiences of domestic and transnational reproduction through ARTs, surrogacy, and adoption.
